    In a large deep skillet pan, heat butter and olive oil and cook the shrimp for 2-3 minutes on each side. Then transfer the shrimp to a plate.
  • 4.
    To the same pan, add some more olive oil, garlic, onion, mushrooms, capsicums, and the rest of the cajun spice mix.

    Saute for a few minutes, then add the tomatoes, stock, and uncooked dry penne pasta.
